Call him cocky, call him confident, but never call him dull. The Midnight Swinger erupts onto the stage like the volcano in front of the Mirage Hotel in a fresh and original, over the top event that has been called "sharp-witted", "clever" and "classy". Putting the show back in showman, The Midnight Swinger combines the style and cool of a 60's Las Vegas performer with the flash and excitement of a 21st century Super Bowl halftime extravaganza. More than just a stand-up comedian, the Midnight Swinger is proud to be called a throwback entertainer. That's right, an entertainer! The Swinger believes in more than just standing behind the microphone and telling jokes, and doing more than just a simple "comedy show". The Midnight Swinger puts on a spectacle that leaves the audience LAUGHIN', SINGIN' and SWINGIN'.
The Swinger always wears the sharpest threads no matter where he is performing, and stylin' and profilin' with an oversized pompadour. The Swinger will be the first to tell you, "Damn, I Look Good", his battle cry before, during and after every show.
The never subtle or soft spoken Midnight Swinger heats up the room as he puts on a classic Las Vegas style show filled with great comedy, music, singing and dancing. And when the show is over, you will walk out with a smile on your face yelling DAMN, I LOOK GOOD! Read more...

Whether it’s at a college, a private event, or a comedy club, Johnny’s clean and clever style of comedy is sure to keep the audience laughing.

Over the last 4 years Wil spent a lot of time north of the equator, performing live in London, Edinburgh, Ireland, Montreal, Canada, New Zealand and across the US and securing regular guest appearances on the popular US late night comedy talk show, Chelsea Lately.
Since 2008 Wil has been the host and executive producer of the ABC (Australian Broadcast Company) TV's highest rating program "The Gruen Transfer series" - a role that saw him nominated for a Gold Logie in 2010, and also won Best Entertainment Show at the AACTA awards in 2011.
Gruen has spawned the spin-offs Gruen Nation, the sports themed Gruen Sweat and Gruen Planet. In 2013 Wil returned to host a series of Gruen Nation and Gruen Planet which was once again the number 1 entertainment show on the ABC network, a record fifth year in a row. In 2012 Gruen Planet was nominated for a Logie, and in May 2013 Gruen Sweat won the prestigious Rose d'Or, Europe's equivalent of the Emmys.
But it’s on stage where Wil is in his element: 2012 saw Wil busy touring his hit live show Wilarious to sold out venues around Australia, earning rave reviews and winning his third consecutive Bulmer's People’s Choice Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, not to mention being named one of comedy’s hottest acts by none other than John Cleese.
2013 saw Wil’s most successful tour yet, with GoodWil being seen by over 50,000 people including audience across North America in Vancouver, Montreal, LA, New York, Minneapolis, Seattle, DC, Cleveland and Denver.
GoodWil was awarded a Fringe Award for Best Comedy during the Adelaide Fringe Festival, and enjoyed a sell-out 21-night run at the prestigious 1600-seat Princess Theatre during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival where it received a five-star review from the Herald-Sun. It was later performed everywhere from a a log-cabin in Alaska to a two-week sold-out season at the prestigious Soho Theatre in London.
To cap off 2013, GoodWil was nominated for a Helpmann award (Australia’s Tonys) for live comedy performance. This is a record-breaking fourth nomination in a row.
Wil is also the host of the popular podcasts Wilosophy which regularly tops the iTunes charts in Australia, and TOFOP which was recently named iTunes Best Classic Audio podcast for 2013. Read more...

Indeed, he was hired as a story editor, which means he wrote a script or two per season, and contributed mightily to the scripts written by his colleagues, adding jokes, improving dialogue, etc. Before long, his work in the writers room so impressed the Fox show’s producers—who also knew of his acting aspirations and abilities (a few years prior, he had landed a development deal with Fox)—that they cast him in a recurring guest role as Titus’ brother-in-law, Michael.
So when it comes to working in network television, while we wouldn’t exactly say “been there, done that”—we’re guessing that under the right circumstances, he might be persuaded to return to such work—he has logged that experience, and his passion for stand-up has never wavered.
Not coincidentally, perhaps, he’s always had a tremendous flair and a considerable gift for it. One measure of this would be his results over the years in comedy competitions, or similar enterprises.
In 2001, he was voted one of the 25 top comics in the country in a poll of comedy club owners nominating candidates for the American Comedy Awards. And, perhaps needless to say (given all these victories, achievements and accolades), he’s starred in his own Comedy Central half-hour special, appeared on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” and a slew of other TV shows.
Still, when all is said and done about his work—cable TV, network TV, writing, acting, etc.—Robert Hawkins’ first love is performing comedy in a club in front of a live audience, and obviously he’s pretty damn good at it. Do you want to miss that? Didn’t think so. Read more...
